Comments of participants :

‘I attended their introductory Vedanta course in Anaikatti... It was a ten day capsule in the true Gurukulam style where the guru and the student are together from morning to night. The sessions were interspersed with yoga, meditation, walks and Q&A. The way the teachings of the Vedas were unfolded to us was brilliant. It was systematic, logical and came from a deep knowledge of the texts. Besides knowing the texts backwards, Surya and Neema are living examples of the Vedantic way of life.’

‘Before my trip to India for this intensive retreat, people were asking me 'what are you going there for?' My reply, coming from the depth of my heart was: 'I want to know what all this is about, what is the mystery behind this universe'. The answer came to me, clearly, thanks to Surya, who an evident mastery over the subject matter of Vedanta. He has been able to keep us captivated during all these 10 days...These were truly great and unforgettable moments.’

'The ashram of Swami Dayananda is a very conducive place for exchanges and inquiry. People were very warm (and the cook outstanding), I keep excellent memories of the overall atmosphere of the place. The diversity of the background of participants gave rise to great sharing of experiences. I thank you infinitely for the teaching you gave me. I consider myself as blessed to have been able to meet you this year. My infinite thanks for your contribution to the world and you ability to keep alive the most ancient spiritual tradition with so much joy, passion and commitment.'
